One Week Strong

Ok, so first of all, I recognize my header picture is unnaturally huge. I will be asking my blog master sister Elise how to fix it soon, don't worry. But- I took that picture one morning from my apartment on my mission. Hawaii = beautiful sunrises and sunsets, every single day.

As for my blog theme, I decided on something that would always make me post positive- the morning. I love the morning. It's my favorite time of day. I like it because it's so full of hope- in the still of the morning, when the sun is just rising, nothing bad has happened yet. Whatever happened the day before, you can make today better, you can do the right thing today. It's so refreshing.

It's also a good depiction of how I feel. I just got back from my mission, and I'm on to new adventures. Things are similar to how they once were, but they're also different. And in the next 5 years, who knows what my life is going to bring. Graduation, career, marriage...? I really don't know, but it's going to be new, and I want to make the best of it. I feel like lately God has been giving me all these pointers in various aspects of my life, but it's like He's giving me just enough to know that He's involved, and a plan is in the works, but not enough for me to know exactly what's going on. Hence the need for a positive and grateful perspective- it's so tempting to be frustrated. But- life is good, tomorrow is a new day, and it will be good, right? Right.

In other news, I'm trying to curb my facebook addiction. I just can't help it- I have all these people I forgot existed for the past 18 months, and now they're all married and having babies! It's crazy.

Real Life. New Blog.

I just want to say that I am over this real life business. It's not that I'm dying to be back on a mission, but things sure were a lot more simple when I only had one thing to worry about. I know everything will work out, it's just a matter of getting back on my feet.

As it were, welcome to my new blog friends!

Haha I wanted to post that I am tired of all the stresses of real life, but when I got to my blog, I noticed a few things. Firstly, I was a little annoyed by my pre-mission self. Next, I wanted to change the layout but I couldn't figure it out. These two factors combined, I decided to just let my old blog float into cyber space, and start this fresh clean new one. :)

So here it is! I've been home for about 5 days, and I feel like I'm running in circles. It will be good when school starts again.
